Argentina beat Nigeria in an eventful Group D decider at the Saint Petersburg Stadium on Tuesday night, with Lionel Messi finally getting off the mark at Russia 2018.

The South Americans looked all set to crash out after his opening goal was cancelled out in the second half by a Victor Moses penalty.

A draw would have taken the Super Eagles through to the last 16 at Argentina’s expense and Odion Ighalo had two great chances to win it for them.

But Marcos Rojo’s late winner swung it Argentina’s way and, to Diego Maradona’s delight, they will face France in Kazan on Saturday while the Nigerians are out of the competition.

On a topsy turvy night, these were the best tweets and jokes from Nigeria 1-2 Argentina at Russia 2018:

Uzoho is 19 and playing in a World Cup match. When I was 19 I was trying not to get fingered by my bf in a McDonald’s drive-thru. #NGAARG
